To start with the trip from Santiago airport to the resort is 2.5 hours away. The roads are unfinished in spots which makes for a bumpy ride and makes you feel sick. As I found out on the way out of the country the trip we took in was a back roads way due to some "accidents" along Route 5... More

The Octopus restaurant, ordered a steak medium rare, it's yet to be beaten on taste and texture, rest of the food there also is very good. Ocean grill in the evening, another bad experience here, service poor, food not to high a standard. The italian, you need to be starving to go here, good food went there a few times

My husband and I booked our trip to Gran Ventana, from Sunday, June 22nd to Thursday, June 26th, for our 10th anniversary. Having two little girls under the age of 6, I was a nervous wreck about what we were going to find in our first all inclusive so far away from home. From the moment we entered the lobby,... More

My mother and I arrived via private shuttle and was greeted by friendly staff. We were given wet wash clothes and passion fruit drinks to refresh ourselves. We were invited to open bar and festivities until our room was prepared. The food was excellently prepared with many varieties of dishes from around the world. Our rooms were upgraded to pool...

This is a hotel where your comfort is their priority and you can feel that wherever you are in the hotel. The food is excellent and the variety can satisfy anyone. This was my first trip back...

We had a family spring break in April at Gran Ventana. The weather was hot. We enjoyed the snorkeling right off the hotel beach. Other's mention the seaweed, which is there, but if you have on a snorkel and fins, you can see that is the natural reef FULL of fish. Only 20 feet off the beach you are surrounded... More
